Category Ratings: (1-10 scale)
The art is absolutely excellent. The artist manages to make the art flow with emotion and detail.
The characters are drawn exceptionally and consistently. Although some characters are dressed strangely and the like, the characters and setting are drawn with incredible attention to details.
The plot is woven intricately and it's obvious that the author spent much time fixing details.
Although some things are unanswered, such as the nature of the main antagonist, The plot is generally excellent. At first, it is a series of short stories about Munsu's adventures, however, eventually, it develops into saga with flashbacks, betrayals and romance.
The characters are excellent. Although we see Munsu as a person on the side of good, by all means he is not a saint and many of his flaws are depicted. As the brutal reality is shown, we see that Munsu is not a superhuman.
The other characters are developed with less details but are just as good. Every character seems to have their own set of beliefs and values and by no means are two dimensional.
The theme definitely deserves a 10. The story is unpredictable and takes extremely sharp turns. The short stories show that nothing is as it appears.
Eventually, as the main plot develops it develops into a larger theme. It shows that we must accept the world as it is... that the world is a harsh place... but by no means should we give up hope.
The manga was definitely refreshing for me to read. There are no "I beat you, now you're my friend", and barely any stereotypical cliches. What you unconsciously prepare for is often the exact opposite of what actually happens.
This series is definitely a must read. Although the flashbacks may drive you crazy(There's a 10+ chapter flashback), this series is still an amazing manhwa.
It kept me at the edge of my seat and I had to struggle with myself every time i had to put it down for a bathroom break or sleep.
I recommend that you read this series slowly and absorb every detail, every character and enjoy it as much as possible.
Here's some random pics I found. Not from chapters, but more cover art so it's spoiler free
